sony a-33,
was walking into a sony store and tried both the a55 and a33, Love the 10fps in a55, 7fps in a33 is also very fast.. the "tuck tuck tuck.." sound when i go for 10fps is very exciting and addictive, to me.. haha

Anyway, I use nikon and i love it. :)

If you're going for maximum features for your dollar, the A33 is hard to beat.

Darlie, not too good for my gums. Colgate has so many different types for different purpose that i wonder if they have colgate for burns. Crest never used, Sensodyn is the best i have used so far, healed my bleeding gums. but doesnt taste as good as the others. haha

Prince Photogenic,

I'm sure by now you would have noticed that it is all down to personal choice.

Yes, you can compare technical data, but there's always your gut feel about the camera. Go and touch and feel the various cameras so you can know for yourself.

Don't want to get cramps holding something too heavy/light/big/small over a long time. So once you have determined a model or two that you like, you can come back and maybe ask us why we chose why we chose.

Cheers!

i've actually narrowed my choice to the Nikon D5000 and A-33. Sort of like the LCD that can turn..

The Oly E620 has a fully articulating screen while the Nikon D5K only has a tilt-able screen. So I wonder what kind of logic you are going by here.

D5000 has a fully articulating screen. Same as the Olympus E-620, except it mounts towards the bottom. Don't comment on something if you don't know about it. At least google.

Please read the reviews. They go into detail in what the translucent mirror is, etc.

If it helps, the A33's bigger brother, the A55, is getting a lot of awards:

Sony A55 voted camera of the year 2010

Review that shows how good the EVF and SLT is:

Go to a shop and try them out. Then choose the one you like. It is all down to personal preferences. These cameras are more than capable of great photos.

Oh my. I was in 2 minds when I posted the earlier reply. Yes yes, both have fully articulating screens. I still don't understand the logic. Why did TS eliminate the E620 when the articulating LCD is what he's looking out for? Ohwell.

D5000 has a fully articulating screen. Same as the Olympus E-620, except it mounts towards the bottom. Don't comment on something if you don't know about it. At least google.
As above. Nah, I've touched a number of D5000s but have not seen one for quite a while. Your reply seems to be verging on rude. Hope it is not intentional, have a nice day.

Sorry. My apologies. Was dealing with a very irritating incident at work and it must have kind of slipped through. Sorry again.
